What is Fibre rush?

 

Fibre rush is a very durable one ply, twisted paper made to resemble real twisted bull rushes. Paper fibre or "fiber reed" was introduced when China had an embargo on rattan reed exportation.


 

Fibre Rush Furniture Care

As the material is made from twisted paper never use water to clean any fibre rush surfaces. What you can do is use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clean dirt and dust from the fibre rush seat on a regular basis. Use the brush attachment gently to clean in between the strands of fibre rush material.

 

Try to clean built up dirt by scratching the dirt from the surface carefully not to damage the fibre rush material.

 

Some people will apply Scotch Guard or shellac to the surface to protect it from staining. Be aware that shellac may become brittle and flake with time.

If you are unsure what type of cane weaving you have, please see below for descriptions and photos or visit my website to find out more about cane types and cane care. https://www.caningcanada.com/cane-types-care


 

Binding Cane / Rattan Weaving

https://www.caningcanada.com/rattan

Binding cane sometimes referred to as rattan is used to weave Danish Mid Century Modern furniture. Examples being magazine shelves on teak tables, Hans Olsen rocking chairs, the backs of settees, the joins of pod chairs and what people often refer to as wicker chairs.


 

Hand Woven Cane – Traditional Seven Step Method

https://www.caningcanada.com/hand-cane

So if the holes go through the frame of the chair or settee and looks like the photo below then you have a hand caned piece woven in the standard pattern.

Other names used for hand caning include strand cane, lace caning, traditional caning, hole to hole caning and natural strand caning.


Blind Hand Cane / French Cane & Double Sided Cane

https://www.caningcanada.com/french-dble

These all go together because blind caning or French caning is when the holes of a hand caned chair do not go all the way through the chair frame. Each individual strand of cane is cut to size, woven and then glued into the holes. Holes are then pegged to provide the finished piece.


Double Sided Caning is when both sides of the chair or settee frame is caned. Double caned surfaces are also usually blind caned as well.

Hand Caned Medallions Hanging or Fixed woven in the Stannard Seven step Method, the Sunshine, Sunrise or Sunset Pattern

https://www.caningcanada.com/medallions

Caned pieces with hanging medallions are woven in the sunshine pattern as the medallion is a separate piece which is support when woven into the piece with cane in either the standard seven step method or the sunshine method.

Medallions can also be fixed at the bottom or the top of the frame or multiple panels within a frame. If the medallion is at the bottom then the piece is woven in sunrise pattern. The rising sun pattern forms a sun ray with tight holes at the bottom of the ray and wider spaced holes along the sides and top of the ray.

If the fixed medallion is at the top of the frame or the panel then the cane is woven in the sunset pattern. These pieces are often blind caned or French caned as well.

How can I get my rush or seagrass chair repaired?

A seat woven with grass type materials are very comfortable, durable and stylish. At Caning Canada we offer fibre rush material to repair these types of seats. The fibre rush material comes in light brown and a darker brown called kraft brown. The two different colours also come in different sizes or gauges.

 

Fibre rush is a very durable one ply, twisted paper made to resemble real twisted bull rushes. Paper fibre or "fiber reed" was introduced when China had an embargo on rattan reed exportation. Paper fibre became the substitute for natural rattan reed. Material is wrapped around the four dowels framing the square of a seat creating four triangles.

 

Very often seats woven with different grasses, seagrass, rush or fibre rush can be remove from the chair frame. These seats can then be mailed to Caning Canada to have the material replaced with the fibre rush of your choice. Please visit my website to find out how to ship the seats for weaving repair.

How to Ship Chair Seats and Backs to Caning Canada

 

https://www.caningcanada.com/shipping

 

Most dining room chair seats or backs are removed by removing 4 screws, which screw up through a bottom or side of the frame and into the seat or back frame. Chairs seats and backs can then be sent by Canada Post for weaving and returned collect. Please contact me for details.

 

How do I clean Fibre Rush Chairs

 

On a regular basis use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment to clean dirt and dust from the fibre rush seat. Use the brush attachment gently to clean in between the strands of fibre rush.

 

Try to clean built up dirt by scratching the dirt from the surface carefully not to damage the fibre rush material.

 

Never use water to clean fibre rush as it is a made from twisted paper.

Danish Cord Chair Completed with Rush Pattern

Posted by Webmaster on January 7, 2016 at 7:25 PM Comments comments (0)

I finished Betty's chairs last week and she was very happy with the results. Betty's husband now has a clean and freshly woven set of chairs for his boy card evening. I posted a photo of her wingback style chairs under both fibre rush and Danish cord pages as they were woven with Danish cord using the standard rush pattern. 

Danish Cord Chair Completed with Rush Pattern

I am very excited to be getting four Mollar chairs on Monday woven with Danish cord in the rush pattern. I saw the chairs when I did this cute little hand caned child's chair for Betty. The chairs are just lovely and I can't wait to re-weave them. :)
